2011 Topps UFC Moment of Truth Features Sketch Cards

There is clearly a market for UFC trading cards and now, the company's partner has announced plans for a new set, due for release around Thanksgiving.  Topps hasn't shied away from trotting out new UFC card products every few months, so apparently they're a  money maker.

2011 Topps UFC Moment of Truth features a 220-card base set, the largest one to date and collectors will notice an artsy feel to this one. Topps has produced all 220 cards in the company's sketch card format, featuring artist renditions of octagon action.  There will be nine base cards per pack.

Topps plans 16 packs per box with 12 boxes making up a case.  Boxes will cost your local card dealer $42-43 each.

There will be three hits per box with one dual hit card, one autograph and one relic joining 16 parallels and 16 inserts.  The dual hit cards include 1/5 Tale of the Tape, which will have a fighter autograph and a piece of fight-used hand tape.  Dual Relics, Dual Autos, and several versions of a Showdown Shots series featuring great UFC rivalries.

Other highlights include seven very limited UFC Champions book cards that feature a fighter's autograph and two jumbo relics (fight gear and a piece of the mat they fought on).

Several parallels of each base card will be offered inlcuding Gold (No #), Onyx (#/188), Ruby (#/8) and Diamond (1/1).

Insert card themes include Collision Course, Elite Skills, Showdown Shots, Heavy Hitters and Fight poster Review, all of which will also have parallels,  a common Topps staple across all of its product lines.

Topps plans to include 70 different  autographs in its checklists for Moment of Truth.  It's not likely all of those will be fighters.  Octagon girls and others associated with the UFC will likely have signed cards.  Cain Velasquez, while one of MMA's top draws, may have one of the worst looking autographs in sports.

2011 Topps UFC Moment of Truth will also offer the first cards from Strikeforce, including signed cards.

Check out the photo gallery Topps offered MMA Collecting as a preview of the Moment of Truth product.
